Vision 4's key features

2020 Vision icon

Same boat. Same comfort. Better experience!

The Vision fleet has been a firm favourite among our customers for years due to its spacious interior, massive sundeck and excellent features. However, some of our customers told us that they found them to be a little too high-tech and complicated to use. So we've invested over €7M and have made some BIG technical changes to the boat’s controls and onboard systems… and now they are MUCH easier. In fact, they are now much the same as our new Horizon boats which receive rave reviews.


For those who have experienced the Vision before, we can’t wait for you to experience the difference. When you step on board, you will see little change. You’ll find the same great space, layout and features as before. The only thing notably missing is a joystick, which we've replaced with easy-to-use Bow AND stern thrusters to propel the front and rear of the boat sideways. You will notice a more straight-forward pre-departure briefing and a more relaxed feeling as you cruise with increased confidence.

Vision 4 Interior & saloon
  • Luxurious and spacious interior, tastefully furnished and equipped.
  • Large open plan saloon/kitchen galley with music system; interior steering position and access to fore deck from saloon.
  • Convertible settee in saloon sleeps one additional person.
  • Modern design kitchen galley with gas oven, hob and large fridge, fully equipped for great onboard entertaining.
Vision 4 Cabins & bathrooms
  • The cabins in Vision 4 Diesel are all the same size and designed for privacy. Each cabin has a bed that can work as a double or two singles.
  • The full standing headroom (6.5 feet/2 meters) will appeal to taller cruisers, and level flooring makes the staterooms feel more like luxurious hotel suites.
  • Each stateroom has modern en-suite bathroom facilities that include sink, state-of-the-art electric-flush toilet, and enclosed shower.
Vision 4 Sundeck
  • Huge top sundeck with steering position, BBQ, bar fridge and collapsible, sun-canopy (bimini)
  • Additional sideways thrusters at front and rear for exceptionally easy manoeuvring and mooring
  • 220v shore power & 220v power while you cruise (high wattage appliances not recommended for use while cruising)
Air cooling and air conditioning

When the temperatures soar, air conditioning can help make your night’s sleep a little more comfortable. Thermostatically controlled to keep the internal temperature up to 10°C below external temperature. 


There is a thermostat in the saloon, which collectively controls the temperature in the saloon and frontmost cabin, and a thermostat in the rear cabin which collectively controls the temperature in the three rearmost cabins.


Please note: Performance significantly reduces if canal/river temperature is too high.

Great congregate space inside and out, large windows, comfortable beds. Engine worked well. The itinerary was perfect with a blend of pastoral scenes and lovely villages or towns. It allowed for a leisurely cruise place to place including two nights in Chalon-sur-Saône.

The boat was great for our group of 4 couples, 4 state rooms with private bathrooms and ample space on deck and in the main cabin. Unfortunately there was restriction on our travel due to bridge maintenance then we were restricted due to water levels. We also had a mechanical issue with one of the bow thrusters that limited maneuverability but was only a minor inconvenience. Nicely appointed roomy boat that was very comfortable for all 8 of us.
Thank you very much for taking the time to send us this wonderful feedback. We are sorry that you had a minor issue with your thruster on the cruiser you are on. Le Boat has undertaken a massive project to upgrade and refurbish the entire Vision Fleet. This thruster should no longer be an issue for future customers. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the boat otherwise and that you found the region and our staff pleasant for your trip. We hope you will cruise with us again soon.

The support and service from the team was excellent. We were a little disappointed that on our first day the boat wasn't ready til 5pm even though we arranged to pick it up at 2pm. We had perishable food with us that was sitting in the heat of the day. One of the maintenance guys saw us all sitting in the sun and went and got us a table umbrella, very thoughtful. The trip was fantastic and extremely comfortable. The boat was extremely big and having a joystick made maneuvering very easy. During the week we had an issue with the boat. The LeBoat team (Jihn Baptiste, Angelique and Caroline) were fantastic. They were very responsive, prompt and helpful. Their follow up during the week was outstanding. We spoke only a little French and they spoke great English. This was our third boat trip but our first with the Le Boat and we can't recommend the Douelle team more highly
Hi Cathryn, thank you for your feedback and we're glad that our Douelle team were able to assist where possible. We are glad that you had a great holiday overall and we look forward to welcoming you back on board another cruise soon.

The Le Boat staff near Casier in Italy were extremely helpful at the start, during and the end of our hire. In particular Neil went above and beyond to help us with some difficulties with the boat and our onshore accommodation. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time on the River Sile and throughout the Venice lagoon and it's many small islands such as Marzorbo, Murano, Burano and Vignole. We managed all the way down to Chioggia and enjoyed a swim in the Adriatic. Fresh food was fantastic and we enjoyed some of our best meals on the boat. I have sailed on a Vision before so knew exactly what to expect. As said some minor electrical problems quickly sorted. A well equipped boat and easily enough room for 9 of us.
Hi John, Thanks for the lovely feedback. It's fantastic to hear that you had such an amazing time in Venice - it sounds like you did a lot of exploring and enjoyed some lovely food. I'm really glad that you were looked after by our lovely teams. We hope that we can welcome you on board again soon!All the best,The Le Boat Team

Initial briefing could have been more comprehensive re shore power and hiding the hose adaptor in the documents bag. Reasonably roomy boat for 8 people.
Thank you for your feedback. We are really sorry you were disappointed with the initial briefing and instruction. Our local teams are contactable before and during your cruise to try and make the experience as enjoyable and stress free as possible so it’s disappointing to know you didn’t have the relaxing experience you, and we, would have wanted. We have taken your feedback on board and hope to welcome you back on board in future.
